We help teachers TEACH.

We offer creative educational concepts to new and veteran educators so that they can help our most vulnerable students succeed. Our dynamic lesson plans, teaching tips and other resources are designed to help great educators become extraordinary.

We provide custom elementary and secondary lesson plans that are aligned to the Common Core State Standards in the subjects of literacy and mathematics. Our instructional strategies have been tested in real classrooms and have been proven to be successful with the most challenging learners.

Our goal is to help you become a better teacher by providing you with an arsenal of helpful and reliable resources. Whether you are a parent or a new educator, we want to help you fuel great minds – one classroom or student at a time.

IgnitED

We can help schools and teachers with professional development, new teacher support, and teacher pedagogy.

Professional Development

We provide authentic professional development training that is tailored to meet the needs of urban students and students that are below grade level. All of our sessions are taught by practicing high performing educators of struggling learners which helps to increase the implementation of the instructional strategies.

New Teacher Support

Our new teacher support does not end after the professional development session. The IgnitED new teacher  support program offers a unique 2 tier approach to supporting new teachers by providing follow up classroom visits conducted by a veteran teacher, as well as the opportunity to collaborate with other new teachers via Google Hangout and other social media platforms.

Teacher Pedagogy

At IgnitED we realize that sometimes good teachers have very strong content knowledge but know very little about pedagogy. Our highly skilled presenters provide professional development participants with proven instructional strategies that builds each teacher’s instructional toolbox and meets the unique needs of struggling learners.
